DOCOMOMO US Tour Day – The Diversity of Modernism

August 28, 2019

DOCOMOMO US has organized a line-up of tours and events for the organization’s 13th Tour Day. The only national event of its kind, Tour Day is a celebration of modern architecture and design where the public and like-minded organizations across the country participate in a tour or event on the second Saturday and throughout the month of October. This year’s thematic focus, “The Diversity of Modernism” reflects the efforts of DOCOMOMO US and its chapters to raise awareness of sites designed by minority and female architects, landscape architects, designers, and engineers, and of the designers themselves. In many cases, very little is known about the designer or their design legacy and DOCOMOMO US looks forward to casting light on the significance and status of these sites throughout 2019 and beyond.

See the full range of tours, many in NY, NJ and CT on the DOCOMOMO US 2019 Tour Day website.
